Skywatchers across the globe on Thursday enjoyed watching a spectacular "ring of fire" annular solar eclipse. All around the world, astrophotographers captured stunning images of the celestial phenomenon.

In India, the annular solar eclipse took place at 01:42 PM and will last until 6.41 pm in most of the areas. The duration of this solar eclipse at Greatest Eclipse is said to be around 3 minute and 51 seconds.

During an annular solar eclipse, the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, but it does not completely cover the sun as it passes, leaving some sunlight visible.

NASA's official Twitter handle posted pictures of the eclipse and wrote, "Good morning to everyone, but especially the Sun and Moon forming today's #SolarEclipse. The full annular, or "ring of fire" eclipse was only visible in the far north, but @nsashqphoto captured images of the partial eclipse."

As the "ring of fire" occurred, many took to Twitter to share the pictures of the amazing phenomenon. While some shared pictures, other were in awe of those pictures and they commented and wholeheartedly spread the pictures around.

Here's a look at all the pictures that Twitterati shared.
